The Strength And The Power
Of A Small But Wise Nucleus
RABBI IRWIN GRONER
Special to The Jewish News
his week's Torah por-
tion describes how
Moses decides to send
12 spies, a reconnaissance
team, into the land of Canaan
to bring back a report about
it and its inhabitants. This in-
telligence unit was comprised
of a representative of each of
the 12 tribes of Israel,
"Everyone a leader among
At the end of 20 days, the
group returned with an
alarming report: "The people
are strong that dwell in the
land, and cities are walled,
and very great; and moreover,
we saw the children of giants
there." Their conclusion, bas-
ed on what they saw, was
realistic, clear and une-
quivocal: "We shall not be
able to prevail against these
people, for they are stronger

old days" of the fleshpots of
Egypt, when in spite of their
servitude they had delicacies
to eat. Only a tiny number
really understood the mission
of Moses. But it was the power
of that small group, like
Joshua and Caleb, that made
it possible for the people to at-
tain freedom and responsibili-
ty. Even as the Hebrews stood
at the threshold of their final
emancipation - their entry
into the Promised Land -
they still were not committed
to the ideal of liberation. Only
the barest minority felt the
necessity for it.
When Moses heard that
only Joshua and Caleb had
the wisdom and the will to
believe in the conquest of the
Promised Land, that was
enough for him. He was not
dismayed or frightened by the
Beth Jacob-Mogain Abraham:
Only two of the 12, Joshua
and Caleb, brought back a
positive report. They said:
"We should go up at once and
possess it, for we are well able
to overcome it." The 10 falter-
ing, feeble and frightened
men did not inherit the
future. It was the minority of
two, Joshua and Caleb, that
won God's approval, for their
report proved to be true. They
were privileged to enter the
land of Canaan some 40 years
The story of the 12 spies is
the eternal witness of the
strength and power of a
devoted nucleus. In every
society, that which deter-
mines its character, program
and future depends upon the
existence within it of a strong
and effective minority of peo-
ple whose determination
achieves their vision and
realizes their hope.
The children of Israel were
liberated from Egypt because
they were destined for
freedom. Over and over, the
Torah points out that they
really didn't want freedom.
They remembered the "good
